2. INTRODUCTION
Product
Overview
The Hemisphere™ 5.1 is a rotating, multi-colored centerpiece light. The product
contains red, green, blue, white, and amber LEDs for effects similar to a mirror ball.
The moving head spins in both directions and at variable speeds to create an everchanging star field. Sound-activated programs change the lights to the beat of the
music. Standalone modes allow customized looks without a DMX controller.

3. SETUP
AC Power
The Hemisphere™ 5.1 has an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an input
voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit breaker, power outlet, and
wiring), use the current value listed on the label affixed to the product’s back panel, or
refer to the product’s specifications chart. The listed current rating indicates the
product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the product to a protected circuit (circuit breaker or fuse). Make
sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even
if the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
Fuse
Replacement
Follow the instructions below to change the fuse, if necessary.
Disconnect the product from power before replacing the fuse.

Connect the product to a suitable power outlet.
Turn the product on.
Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output of the DMX controller to the DMX input
socket on the product.
When selecting a starting DMX address, always consider the number of DMX channels
the selected DMX mode uses. If you choose a starting address that is too high, you could
restrict the access to some of the product’s channels.
The Hemisphere™ 5.1 uses up to 512 DMX channels in DMX mode, which defines the
highest configurable address to 508.
If unfamiliar with DMX, download the DMX Primer from the CHAUVET® website.
To select the starting address, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 5ch shows on the display. If DMX address already
displays, go to step 3.

Configuration
(Standalone)
To control the product without a DMX controller, connect the product to a suitable power
outlet and set the product in one of the three standalone modes below.
Never connect a product that is operating in any standalone mode (Sound-Active,
Automatic, or Master/Slave) to a DMX string connected to a DMX controller.
Products in standalone mode may transmit DMX signals that could interfere with
the DMX signals from the controller.
Sound-Active
Mode
To enable the Sound-Active mode, follow the instructions below:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until SoUn shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER>.
3.
Turn the music on and adjust the microphone sensitivity knob until the product
starts responding to the beat of the music.
The product will only respond to low frequencies of music (bass and drums).
Automatic Mode
Master/Slave
Mode
Page 12 of 15
To enable an Automatic mode, follow the instructions below.
Manually selecting an Auto program:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until Pr.XX shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER>.
3. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select the automatic program from Pr.01 to Pr.14.
4. Press <ENTER>.
Automatically running an Auto program:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until AUTO shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER>.
The Master/Slave mode allows a single Hemisphere™ 5.1 product (the “master”) to
control the actions of one or more Hemisphere™ 5.1 product (the “slaves”) without the
need of a DMX controller. The master unit will be set to operate in either Automatic or
Sound-Active mode, while the slave units will be set to operate in Slave mode. Once set
and connected, the slave units will operate in unison with the master unit.
Configure the units as indicated below.
Slave units:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until SLAU shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3. Set the DMX address to d.001.
4. Connect the DMX input of the first slave unit to the DMX output of the master unit.
5. Connect the DMX input of the subsequent slave units to the DMX output of the
previous slave unit.
6. Finish setting and connecting all the slave units.
Master unit:
1. Set the master unit to operate in either Automatic or Sound-Active mode.
2. Make the master unit is the first unit within the DMX daisy chain.
·
Configure all the slave units before connecting the master unit to the DMX
daisy chain.
·
Never connect a DMX controller to a DMX string configured for Master/Slave
operation because the controller may interfere with the signals from the
master unit.
·
Do not connect more than 31 slave units to the master unit.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life and mechanical wear. To maintain optimum
performance and minimize wear, you should clean your lighting products at least twice a
month. However, be aware that usage and environmental conditions could be
contributing factors to increase the cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below.
·
Unplug the product from power.
·
Wait until the product is at room temperature.
·
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface.
·
Clean all external optics and transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution,
ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
·
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
·
Softly drag any dirt or grime off the transparent surfaces.
·
Gently polish the transparent surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the external transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
